Torque Specs - SK - '82 W126 300SD
re: '82 W126 300SD - Ball Joint R&R - Steering Knuckle

I've searched many threads and archives but haven't found torque specs for the bolts at the bottom of the knuckle that hold the link to the tie rod, or for the self-locking nuts on the ball joint stud and the guide joint stud at the top.

I realize that it may seem that self-locking nuts don't require torquing to some value but to my mind, they should be tightened to some specific amount before the plastic insert is expected to perform its function.

Any information on this from anyone who has factory service data will be appreciated. Thanks for your time as well.
